Burn Wound Evaluation Study
Protocol: STUDY00002865
Full Title
Clinical Trial for Burn Wound Evaluation Using Ultrasound Compression Elas-tography
Description
We are enrolling adults with a burn wound at Erie County Medical Center for a research study. The purpose of this study is to learn how effective an ultrasound probe is in determining burn depth early after a burn wound.

During this study, you will have an ultrasound picture taken of your wounds taken at initial wound assessment and also every day during normal wound dressing changes. Some people will have a biopsy of their wound taken. You will otherwise receive usual wound care. This study takes place at ECMC, 462 Grider Street, Buffalo, NY 14215.

Compensation is not available for this study.

Technical Description

To evaluate the efficacy of a clinically available ultrasound probe in determining burn depth early in the patient's clinical course.
